OBTW, Reserving 4000G to 6000G

No. I'm doing P=250G per core in 15-16 days (i.e. 1T per quad). You're doing P=500G per core in 74 days (i.e 2T on a quad). If it was the same speed as mine, it shoudl take you 30-32 days per core. Hold old is your quad. Although I'm using 2.4 Ghz Intel's, the AMD's should be nearly as fast for sieving. Are you running 64-bit sr2sieve on a 64-bit O.S.? Since it's an older AMD, I would almost exactly twice that speed, i.e. P=500G per core in 37 days.

Are you reserving 74 days work? If so, I'd prefer if people only reserve about 2 weeks worth of work at a time. I'm requesting that in case we have a "heavy player" come along who swoops up and is able to complete everything to P=~15T in 2-3 weeks. We don't straggling ranges holding us up at that point.

On another note, Chris, are you reserving any sieving work? I couldn't tell by your long commentary here.

This AMD quad has always been about twice as slow as my Intels. I even added 2gb (up to 5gb) of memory yesterday and it sped it up about about 5%. I'm trying to find a Bios replacement. It has to be the mobo thats holding it back.

I've already started the 74 days of work. Besides, this is the only machine I have available. After this batch, I'll reserve just 2 weeks worth. This machine would been ideal for that other sieveing effort we talked about a month ago.

PS: I checked, I have the 64bit SR2Sieve on a 64 bit machine.

OK, but it's on your hide if we're nearing the optimum sieve depth for n=500K-600K within about 45 days. (lol) With me reseving P=3T every 15-16 days, we'll progress fairly quickly.

Oh, the irony!

I have a stability issue with Adobe Premiere Elements a.t.m. (finally treated myself ) but should be able to reserve a range soon.

Well if that happens, then they can just concentrate on Drives 5,6,and 7 till the Advanced Molasses Device catches up.

pound shop
noun
  1. (UK / Ireland) a shop selling household groceries, toys, gimmicks etc, that are typically priced at a pound each.
Considering the UK currency is called "pound", I equated it to a "dollar store", which is correct according to this definition. (but, obviously, priced at a pound instead of at a dollar)

Sieving 6000G-6250G.

Running on Windows 7 beta 64 bit @ 2.38GHz.

ETA 3th-4th March.

Ian,

Could I talk you into halving your ranges on each core while I'll pick up the remainder of each starting on Feb. 26th or so?

I know it sounds a little messy but it shouldn't be. Just let me know what ranges you won't be doing and I'll load one of my 3 quads up with those ranges after my current P=1T-4T range is done on the above date. Assuming that we do that, I'll reserve only a P=2T range instead for the other 2 quads. Alternatively, I may add a 4th quad to the effort. [If you do that, I'm assuming that you would give up P=4250G-4500G, 4750G-5000G, 5250G-5500G, & 5750G-6000G and will only process P=4000G-4250G, 4500G-4750G, 5000G-5250G, & 5500G-5750G.]

All you'll have to do is a Ctl-C to stop each and restart each with a new maximum P-range. Obviously the minimum range would remain the same. Sr2sieve will just start where it left off at.

By doing that, I think there will be a very good chance that we'll be close to ready by the end of March to break off n=500K-600K. I hate to stop the very prolific and popular k=1400-2000 range for too long.


Thanks,
Gary

Done

I've restarted with half the ranges as stated by you above.

Great!

Brian has responded favorably to me requesting that he throw a quad at the sieving effort. I'll just suggest that he do these ranges.

Thanks!
